The Great War Stone on the Royal Mile

War Memorial Royal MileThis sketch was created just off the Royal Mile, within the City Chambers courtyard and shows the beautiful archways which make up the street side of the quadrangle.

Edinburgh City Chambers is the home of the City of Edinburgh Council, in Scotland. The “Great War Stone”, which sits central and surrounded by fencing commemorates residents of the royal burgh who lost their lives in World War I.

It is a beautifully peaceful place to admire the architecture and contemplate life and the things we take for granted, even on a busy festival afternoon.

This sketch was made using Spectrum Noir pens from Crafter’s Companion.
